In the long geological time, because of the natural phenomena such as volcanic eruption and debris flow, some plants are sealed in the rock stratum, and the organic matter in the plant body is completely decomposed, but they leave the shape and structure when they are fresh, and even some fine texture is well preserved, which is the plant fossil. In the following years, the organic matter in the remains of these plants has been completely decomposed, and the hard parts such as trunk, root, branches and leaves, together with the surrounding sediments, have been petrified into stones, but their original shape and structure are still preserved; similarly, the traces left by those plants in their lives can also be preserved in this way. We call these fossilized plant remains fossils. From the fossils, we can see the appearance of ancient plants, thus we can infer the situation and environment of ancient plants, infer the age of formation and the change of experience of buried fossils, and see the change of organisms from ancient to modern and so on. Leaf fossils are a miracle in nature. Because of the extremely harsh and difficult conditions for their formation, they are especially precious. They are called "fossil Queen" and "pearl on fossil crown". The fossil leaves are several leaves that are overlapped and folded together. After countless years of nature's creation, so many leaves, so clear texture and so heavy weight are extremely rare. It has a high value of art, viewing, research and collection.
The fossils are deeply buried in the rock strata. Only when they encounter the chance of the strata rising, or they are weathered by wind and rain, can the fossils be exposed. At this time, if you happen to meet a paleontologist, it is possible to dig out the fossil. If there is no one to go, the exposed fossil, along with its surrounding rock, is a little bit weathered away, and the fossil is gone. You can see how difficult it is to find a fossil, especially a complete one. No wonder paleontologists regard fossils as treasures! A teacup is broken, you can buy another one right away, but a fossil is damaged, especially a rare specimen, you may never find it in your life. Precious fossils are not only owned by the producing countries, but also the "wealth" of the world's paleontology. The Archaeopteryx fossils from Germany have models in many countries in the world for exhibition and comparative study. After the loss of the first skull specimen of Chinese ape man, many paleoanthropologists around the world have been looking for it for 50 years. Various types of paleontological fossils are also on display in an endless stream. It can be seen that paleontology fossils are entering the public's vision from the high and unattainable professional fields. Looking at some auctions in recent years, it is not difficult to find that paleontological fossils appear occasionally, and the auction price is not cheap.
